2015 CAPP Scotiabank Investment Symposium Draws More Than 90 Oil, Natural Gas, Transportation and Services Companies

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 24, 2015) - Senior executives from more than 90 oil and natural gas companies, major pipeline and service companies, along with hundreds of institutional investors from across North America, Europe and Asia, will be in Toronto April 8 and 9 for the 2015 CAPP Scotiabank Investment Symposium to grow investment in Canada's energy sector.

Investor presentations will be complemented by panel discussions with LNG proponents, transportation company executives, and keynote addresses by TransCanada Corporation president and CEO Russ Girling and Peter Tertzakian, chief energy economist and managing director with ARC Financial Corporation.

"Canada is a great market to invest in the oil and natural gas industry, and the CAPP Scotiabank Investment Symposium is a key forum for investors to explore investment opportunities in our sector, which remains strong despite the current economic environment," said CAPP president and CEO Tim McMillan.

"The symposium will highlight our industry's focus on cost competitiveness and also highlight our plans to expand markets for both Canadian oil and natural gas," McMillan said. "Naturally, we will also demonstrate our industry's continued commitment to operating safely and in an environmentally responsible manner."

CAPP will host the investment symposium in Toronto for the third time in the event's 25-year history.

With the third-largest oil reserves in the world and as the fifth-largest natural gas producer, Canada is consistently ranked among the top 10 global energy producers. Only about 20 per cent of total global oil reserves are fully accessible for private-sector investment, more than half of which are found in Canada's oil sands. The oil and natural gas industry accounts for about 12 per cent of the value of the Toronto Stock Exchange and is the largest private-sector investor in the country, investing, on average, $65 billion annually over the past five years.

The symposium features investor presentations from a broad range of large- to small-capitalized companies involved in all types of industry activity, including oil sands, tight oil and natural gas development, oilfield services, as well as pipeline and rail transportation.
